Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s CW Innovation programme has partnered with C-Score to develop a tool allowing staff to digitally monitor their physical and mental wellbeing.

The innovation programme, which launched two years ago this month, is a joint initiative from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and its charity CW+.

Its latest venture is to team up with Chelsea Digital Ventures and offer the company’s C-Score app to staff. The free-to-use tool that holistically measures and monitors users’ general health.

Chris Chaney, chief executive at CW+, said: “We are delighted to be working with C-Score in new and innovative ways to help our staff and patients improve their health and wellbeing. Never before has it been more important to promote healthy living and reduce health inequalities.”

“CW Innovation’s expanding portfolio of partnerships with organisations like C-Score, has helped us to respond to the rapidly changing needs of our patients and staff. With digital innovation front and centre at the trust, we’ve embedded people and processes internally, and attracted strategic partners externally to continue to innovate at pace and address the most urgent challenges faced by healthcare organisations today.”

CW Innovation has fast-tracked innovations and technology across the trust, exploiting digital healthcare AI and machine learning to change the way care is delivered to patients for the better. In the summer it pioneered the Acute Covid app to support redeployed NHS staff tasked with treating Covid patients.
